What made you get into handheld gaming?

Definitely Pokemon Yellow and Links Awakening on GBC.

I had my gameboy and really enjoyed links awakening and super mario land 2, but I'm convinced pokemon saved handheld gaming and made it flourish.

I was really into those Tiger Electronics handheld games when I was very young. I remember having a Dinosaur/Caveman one, a Power Rangers one, and a Beauty and the Beast one.

I even had a Tiger R-Zone system before I finally got my hands on a Sega Game Gear.


Haha. This. I had a Power Rangers and a Chip & Dale Rescue Rangers one. I got my first Gameboy though when Nintendo started introducing different colored brick-gameboys. I got a transparent one for x-mas with a copy of Donkey Kong Land.

Link's Awakening.

A Handheld Zelda game? WHAT MADNESS IS THIS!? I must have it!

First handheld system was the Game Boy Color+Pokemon Crystal Bundle, so yeah. Pokemon by far.


Ditto (lol) but with a Game Boy Advance instead.

When I got a GameBoy Color for my birthday together with Pokemon Blue when the game was released.

I failed to find enlightenment in battle. I must go on a spiritual journey to cleanse my soul. And then something with gerbils. It is the path one must take.

I own both consoles and handhelds.

I play handhelds more because they're portable, and I don't like to have to stick to being in my room all day
